since scott is getting so old and mature i decided to give him his first haircut. i thought this photo did a good job of showing how cute he is with his new do. i almost posted some past photos of his mullet but i didn't want to be mean to the poor kid. (besides, i think his mullet would reflect our poor parenting styles above anything else.) as you can see he is happy to be free of that gross neck hair.
there has been one big damper to scott's nine month birthday however...
we took him to urgent care last night because he was so very sick. the doctors found that he has an ear infection. luckily he's on medication now but he still had a few of these sad moments today.
on a happier note- i never got a chance to post pics from the big winter gala we had last weekend with james' school. i have to say, i was impressed with how nice and FUN the whole event actually was. it felt more like prom to me than my own prom (okay, so maybe that's because i didn't go to my senior prom...) but still, it was a lot of fun!
here we are having the traditional group photo with some of our closest friends.
(L-R) jason & emily crofts, james & me, kelly & andy mueting, luke & ashley webb, shalise & devin kearns, doug & rachael cook, and tyler & jamie hansen
and here's a fun little picture of james and i all decked out for the event. and it has to be said that james and i danced together for the first time this night (aside from the many country dancing moments that go on in our kitchen... more regularly than either one of us cares to admit).
and for the record i MUCH preferred going to this prom with my cute and amazing husband than my senior prom with some random seventeen year old wearing way too much cologne. i loved that we could go pick up our son together when it was all done and then go home together and say goodnight to each other as we fell asleep next to each other in the same bed. this could partially be attributed to the fact that i had a serious phobia of doorstep scenes when i was in high school, but nevertheless, if i had to sit at home alone on that senior prom night so many years ago in order to deserve this night with james... it was completely worth it.
